According to an application lodged by Axis Mason architects on behalf of Dandara, the Mayfair, which has 222 beds, could be replaced by 37 one-bedroom and 67 two-bedroom homes.

It follows other plans also announced this week to demolish the Revere, Stafford and Apollo Hotels to deliver a combined total of 201 flats.

Meanwhile, next door to the Mayfair site on St Saviour’s Road, Andium Homes are hoping to obtain permission to build 271 apartments on the former Ann Street Brewery premises. This is in addition to 169 homes already being built by the same company on the nearby site of the former Ann Court estate and around 145 homes being constructed on Le Masurier’s ‘Merchants’ Square’ Bath Street complex.

Within the Mayfair application it also makes reference to homes potentially being built on a ‘JSPCA site’ as well as the ‘Le Bas’ site.

A design statement says: ‘The development has been considered alongside the adjoining Ann Street Brewery and Sans Souci planning applications to provide a single coherent masterplan and exciting vision for the area.

‘The applicant, Dandara Jersey, has a proven track record of successfully delivering high-quality residential regeneration in Jersey. The redevelopment of the Mayfair site will see this continue and will provide much-needed homes for Islanders, together with significant public realm improvements in a highly sustainable town centre location.’
